James Harrison couldn’t get on the field with the Steelers. He didn’t come off the field with the Patriots.
Harrison, who played a total of 38 snaps for Pittsburgh in the five games he was active, played all 14 snaps on the first series of the game. The Eagles got a field goal on the drive.
Cornerback Malcolm Butler, though, didn’t play. He was fighting an illness all week and arrived at the Super Bowl a day later than the rest of the team.
Eric Rowe was on the field instead and allowed two third-down conversions.
Butler played all 74 snaps in the AFC title game.
